Did you know??? November's Coyote Care initiative is a focus on depression. Harvard University's Center on the Developing Child states that "children who do well despite serious hardship have had at least one stable and committed relationship with a stable adult. These relationships buffer children from developmental disruption and help them develop 'resilience' or the set of skills needed to respond to adversity and thrive." Being a parent of a teenager isn't always easy, but providing that support is integral to your student's success! Here is a great guide to help you differentiate between normal teenage behaviors and depression: https://www.helpguide.org/articles/depression/parents-guide-to-teen-depression.htm
